Dear Ms. Knepp,
Thank you for asking about my favorite type of pizza. Like all Americans I love pizza. Living in Chicago for many years, Chicago style deep dish is my favorite. Of course, many of my largest donors live in NY, so NY style pizza is my favorite. San Francisco is also near and dear to my heart and since Neapolitian pizza is really taking off there, it is also my favorite.
Every day, millions of Americans enjoy pies from Dominoes and Pappa Johns, so they too are my favorites. And of course, since small business is the engine of our economy, mom and pop pizza is also my favorite. If I have left your favorite out, rest assured that it is also my favorite.
My opponents havenít had a good pizza idea in over 50 years. We need to move forward and have a national conversation about how we can use pizza to stop them from starving the elderly and the children. Also, I read just the other day that a pizza a day keeps the doctor away, so it also will play an important role in my plan to save Medicare.
Together we can work to end our dependence on foreign cheese and tomatoes and to stop shipping our pizza making jobs overseas. And, we can work to end the tax breaks for big pizza.
Remember, hope and change, yes we can, vote for me in 2012.
